Enhancing the alumni and student experience

The alumni association is focused on three of the following fundamental areas:

  • Promoting alumni engagement
  • Enhancing the value of a RUSH degree
  • Supporting the medical college as well as residency and fellowship programs

The association’s Executive Council works to prioritize and strengthen these areas. Our association leaders represent both RUSH Medical College and the Graduate Medical Education programs at RUSH. These council members are nominated and elected by alumni biennially.

Alumni Association Strategic Plan

In 2013 the Executive Council developed a three-year business plan to help guide its efforts. The plan has already yielded great success, including the creation of a legacy admissions process, increased participation in funding for the White Coat Ceremony, and the building of a Reunion volunteer and giving program.

The Rush Medical College Alumni Association Business Plan 2014-2017 is focused on the following:

  • Supporting medical students, residents and fellows
  • Enhancing the value of the Rush degree
  • Promoting alumni engagement

Stay tuned for updates on the business plan throughout the year.
